Goth kids have shot up your school, and it's up to Pico to save the day! Originally featured on Newgrounds in 1999, I finally refactored the .FLA to accommodate faster computers. The problem with this game was that it was meant to run at 24fps, but boss battles slowed down and made things easier. As computers got faster, so did the boss battles.

Pico was made in Flash 3, before the availability of variables (or just about any code, for that matter). To simulate stored data, I weaved a complex web of movie clips that gave orders to the main game. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware of frame labels, so all the commands referred to frame numbers. This meant making changes to the flow of a boss battle (ie inserting frames to slow down movement) caused MASSIVE problems to arise. I finally muscled through it, so now you can beat the bosses on a fast computer!

Nostalgia!

What is with all these n00bs and the low ratings? This is the first game I remember from NG back in the day! Yeah, it shows it's age, but it's Pico!



EHH

game is okay see alot of stuff like this not better or worse



Ah, the one that started Pico's rise.

Once you know what to do, it's easy. The final boss was quite memorable, to say the least. The dialogue and Easter eggs were hilarious. All in all, this is one of the best games on NG. 5/5 and 10/10.
